    Yesterday our Moda sales rep stopped by... and she had some good news to share.

    Moda has decided NOT to raise their prices. (At least, not right now.)

    Woo-hoo!

    While all the other companies have raised their prices from 35 - 50 cents / yard this year (with no end in sight) Moda raised the prices of their marbles 25 cents, and all the other (new) groups just 10 cents / yard for all of 2010.

    Thought you all might like to know!

    Apparently Moda's thought is that what goes up must come down, and so they're betting that the cost of cotton will eventually decline. The rep said also that Moda's been working with the same mill(s) for so long that they have "a good relationship" with them; perhaps that relationship means that the mill's not hiking their prices greedily.

    Anyway... it works for all of us, doesn't it?

    That is great news . Will the base fabric remain the same? I have noticed some of the top companies have less cotton per inch/yd in some of the lines.

    I love Moda. In fact I was just looking at some this morning. Got a king size coming up so I'm looking for a way to keep the cost down!

    It will be interesting to see if Moda's decision has any effect on the other fabric manufacturers.

    At this point, Moda's 10 - 40 cents / yard less than most of the other brands. Plus, Moda ships their fabric for free, and that's another 25 - 40 cents / yard value. So in terms of cost, they have a definite advantage over their competition.

    And... competition is a good thing, right?

    Thank you, Moda! We need a little good news, especially after the feature on one of our local TV news programs last night about the increase in grocery costs.

    One shop I went to raised the price of all of their fat quarters because of price hikes, including Moda. Not sure about yardage though. I guess it's not very convenient to have one price for moda fat quarters and another price for the other brands.
